Holiday season is approaching quickly and it seems that everyone is flying away for a week or two of fun in the sun. For us ladies, that means that now is the perfect time to start getting our hair removal kit together and get working on making our pins look great, so we can slap on the sun cream and don our favourite new bikini and summer dress.
A few weeks before your holiday is the time to start moisturising daily to get your skin feeling soft and supple. If you can find a tinted moisturizer (the one that gradually tans the legs), even better – that way you can start building up a subtle, natural looking tan and keep your legs moisturised at the same time.
Now, as it gets close to your holiday, it’s time to start with the leg preparations.
First we exfoliate! This will scrub away all the dull, dead skin cells on your legs leaving them looking and feeling fresh and ready for further pampering. This also means they are in an ideal condition to absorb as much moisturizer. If you plan on waxing, this means that the wax will stick better to the hairs rather than any dead skin and will be less painful.
Now for the main attraction. No woman wants to show up to the beach with extra sensitive legs so be sure to do your routine a few nights before you leave to allow your skin to relax a little after the treatment. If waxing is your preference then Veet® Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On is an ideal product, it comes is a handy device that heats up the wax to the recommended temperature automatically. All you have to do is roll it over the area you wish to remove the hair from, add a wax strip on top and then rip the hair off. The exfoliation done beforehand will help to prevent ingrown hairs at this point.
Now, you might be wondering about more delicate areas like the underarms and bikini area. The last thing you want when flaunting your bikini is to be worrying about stray hairs, here and there. Luckily, the Veet® Easywax™ Electrical Roll-On comes with a separate refill, specifically designed to tackle more sensitive areas. As with leg-waxing, it’s a good idea to complete your wax a number of days before for optimal results, this is to avoid any visible red marks. Using the Perfect Finish wipes (included in the kit) should also help to minimise irritated skin.
If waxing is not for you then hair removal cream can be a great alternative – it will give you long-lasting smoothness and is a great method for touch up hair removal when on holidays. Veet® Natural Inspirations™ Hair Removal Cream comes in an easy to transport, convenient tube which is perfect to bring on any vacation. This particular hair removal cream is formulated with natural avocado oil to leave skin moisturized and feeling touchably soft. Even better? It works on legs, arms, bikini lines and underarms too! For those with sensitive skin, there’s an option for you too! Veet® Natural Inspirations™ Hair Removal Cream for Sensitive Skin is available and perfect for tackling hard-to-reach areas and is made for women with sensitive skin in mind.
Last essential tip for your holiday kit? A pretty nail polish to keep your toes looking fresh! Now you’re ready to throw on the flip flops, the bikini and head off to the beach!
